I downloaded the last distributive of 13.1, made DVD for it and tried to install 13.1 on my pc.
Unfortunately, the installation always went until the string “starting udev” and hanged.
I tried to run install with the following parameters:
nomodest acpiacpi_osi=“linux” - not work
edd=off acpi=off noapic - for this case the install passed “starting udev” and hanged after it.
CPU - Core I7 4790 3.6GHz
RAM - 16GB
Video card - Gigabyte Geforce GTX 650 4GB
M/board - Gigabyte GA-P85-D3
Installed OS: Win 8.1 64bit, I would like to use that os with opensuse via dual boot.
The following load parameters helped me to pass across that problem
just replying to say hello and welcome
assuming you are at the gui,
my system boot improved with the following,
in -Yast2, --System, —Boot Loader, ----Boot Loader Options,
-----Vga Mode: was selected as: Unspecified
this allows the bootloader to select the most appropriate mode
for your display
The problem was that PC had two video cards:
- Internal card by CPU (Intel HD 4400)
- Geforce GTX 650
So after installation of Linux with "vga=791 nomodeset " any trying set NVIDIA driver for GTX 650 went to crash of xserver.
lspci | grep -e VGA
I saw Linux loaded two drivers: for an internal card and GTX 650. Turned off the first card in BIOS and my Linux has worked well.
I hope it help somebody.
